This is a "Wiki". What's a Wiki?
+
1. Find something out of date or incomplete
Let's pretend you and I want to write the definitive reference for Toastmasters in the world.
+
2. Click "edit" (on the top or the right hand side of your screen)
+
3. Update or complete the article
It would probably take several months for you and I just to decide on what needs to be in a resource like that. Then we either have to write it or commission other people to write it. Then we have to edit what they submit.
+
4. Click "save page"
 
That's probably a two-year process.
 
 
The alternative, is that I visit an on-line resource, looking for, say, Table Topics. I find NOTHING. So I add one little idea.
 
 
Then you come along, looking for table topics ideas. You find my idea. So you add one of your own.
 
 
To see this in action, visit the very real Toastmasters wiki at http://toastmasters.wikicities.com
 
   
Now we've got two ideas -- and we're using each other's knowledge.
+
Done!
That's the idea behind this wiki.
